Royal Berkshire Fire and Rescue Service (RBFRS) produces an Integrated Risk Management Plan (IRMP) to ensure we deliver the right resources at the right time, in the right place.

The IRMP balances resources against risk.

Our IRMP contains information on what RBFRS is going to do over a five-year period and is supported by annual action plans.

The current plan is called the Corporate Plan and Integrated Risk Management Plan 2015 – 19.

RBFRS has an IRMP Programme Board to ensure that it meets the statutory requirements of the IRMP process whilst supporting the achievement of the strategic commitments and objectives. The board provides leadership and support for the delivery of the IRMP programme, which is outlined in the Corporate Plan and IRMP 2015-19 and has four key projects which look at managing risk through:

  • Response initiatives (response standards, station locations and crewing arrangements)
  • Response initiatives (use of technology)
  • Prevention initiatives
  • Protection initiatives

The IRMP Programme Board makes recommendations for consideration by the Fire Authority through its IRMP Working Party.
